He is also been an advocate for change declaring that many cases of amputation, death, and long-term disability can be avoided by more aggressive treatment of infections and sepsis. He founded the Midwest Critical Care Collaborative, the Kansas Sepsis Project, and STOP Sepsis, a statewide program to improve sepsis outcomes across a continuum of care that included patients—many of which may not understand sepsis signs and symptoms, and why sepsis is a medical emergency.
